Notice: For the declared winners, I will be messaging you shortly concerning your prizes. Please have an idea of what you would like to request from me. For my special mentions, it is your responsibility to contact me and request your icon prizes. Prize requests will close July 1st. Thanks for the beautiful entries!
Thanks for all of the beautiful entries you guys made for my last challenge!
I would like for you to somehow incorporate the theme of 'magical girl/boy' into your entry. Regardless of whether or not the character(s) in your card are true magical girl(s)/boy(s), the character(s) should at least be dressed as, hold some recognizable accessory, have a power, or have a transformation that resembles that of a magical-type character. This means I don't want a card of Sailor Moon in her bathing suit acting like a normal teenager when I obviously want her in her magical sailor fuku kicking villain butt.
Still not familiar with the theme?
Magical Girl- Magical girl stories feature young girls with superhuman abilities, forced to fight evil and to protect the Earth.
If you need some ideas, you can also find a list of magical girl anime and manga here.
